Is it a plane?...

Well, yes actually... it is!  Or maybe it's a helicopter, I'm not sure...




Now don't laugh - I know you want to!

When we were in Hobbycraft buying door hangers and other stuff to alter, Dex spotted a little plain wood plane and asked if I'd paint it for him... sort of hoping he'd forget about it I said 'of course!' and he's not shut up about it all week lol.  So today, with the littlest dictator stood next to me telling me what colour I should do everything - his favourite colours are pink and blue - and requesting black spots and glitter, this is what I've been doing!

I've used Eco Green acrylic paints, added some stickles on most of the pink bits and some black spots using a Stampin' Up stamp.

I'm not sure why I'm even blogging this lol, seems like conclusive proof that I've gone completely mad :o)

Fab little pink and blue (with black dots) plane - it's good to do something other than make cards occasionally and I bet Dex loves it.

This brought back, with a smile, some of the "mad" things I did for my boys when they were little: Now they're late twenties/early thirties but they still remember me doing this sort of stuff for them...so don't ever think you're "wasting" time doing it; adding love to someone's life - especially a little someone - is always a worthwhile exercise, Dee xx

Vicky Hayes said...

Sarah said...

Well, I think it's lovely! I don't think you are mad at all, and I love hearing about the little details in people's lives - so thank you for blogging it! The things we do for the little ones, eh!! I've stamped images and coloured them weird colours to my little madam happy! Sarah

Lorraine said...

You've not gone mad - you're just being a good momma. I bet he loves his little plane!
